Today, I noticed a comment on this question, coincidentally from a new user, where they were told to read the help and tour pages, and instructed that we are only allowed one question at a time here.

I have never seen this before, nor heard of this practice here. So, I checked the advised pages and didn't see anything. Being a relatively new user myself, and having had several questions posted at the same time (open) I am curious if I have been breaking these rules or not?

Can anyone verify this? As well as please let me know what the reason for this policy is (now sheer personal curiosity).

    I think the idea is one question for each thread. You can definitively open more than one thread, each with one question.

    Sorry if my comment was confusing. I make a point of trying to welcome every new person with a link to the tour and help center, unless someone else has done it already. And yeah, it's a SE cultural rule that we only ask one question per post. People are certainly allowed to make multiple question posts.

You can have as many questions going at once as you like. Putting several questions into a single question becomes a problem, as in the question you linked to. It defocuses the question and often makes for a bad question that's difficult to answer.
